Madison educators to address student safety concerns at safety conference, board meeting
MADISON, Wis. — The Madison Metropolitan School Board will pick up where it left off last week at Monday’s board meeting, discussing how to pay for and install interior locks inside all classroom doors.
Increasing school safety will also be the main topic of the Wisconsin School Safety Commission’s annual conference that starts Monday in the Dells.
This year, the conversation will center around how to insulate schools from potential attacks in the wake of the Florida school shooting, as well as how to better address the topic of mental health in the state’s students.
The conference’s keynote speaker is Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, a U.S. Army Ranger, paratrooper, and retired West Point Psychology professor. He now travels the country, talking to teachers, mental health professionals, and police officers about the psychology of killing.
Grossman argues that if you are not prepared to kill somebody, you should not carry a gun. That discussion comes as President Donald Trump renewed his call for teachers to carry guns in their classrooms in a tweet this weekend.
